With almost 10 years experience working in global and national roles I have a diverse range of experience across B2B and B2C industries. I’m passionate about technology and the pace at which it’s changing the way brands market their products and services.

The best thing about working at Smiling Mind…

Getting to work with a beautiful brand with an amazing purpose.

The biggest challenge in my role:

Deciding what to do! We get so many amazing opportunities but with limited budget and resources it can be challenging to decide which marketing activity will deliver the biggest impact so we can reach our goal to reach 5M young people by 2021.

If I wasn’t working at Smiling Mind I’d…

Probably be working in a tech start-up – I love the pace.

What I do when I’m not at work:

You’ll find me at the beach, doing hot yoga or eating my way through Melbourne.

On meditation:

It just makes everything clearer for me. If I have a list of a thousand items to get done I find it easier to prioritise. I’ve also stopped trying to multi-task as I now realise it’s not effective.
